Subtitled: Bossa Nova And The Rise Of Brazilian Music In The 1960s. "This is the first ever collection of bossa nova record cover artwork, featuring stunning modernist and revolutionary designs that were a reflection of the radical and exciting idealism of Brazil at the start of the 1960s. As Brazil developed into an urban society, with 'apartment living' and consumer goods, bossa nova projected an image that was modern, sophisticated and cool. This era of modernity and developmentalism was also heralded by the building of Brasília, the new capital city built deep in the country's hinterland, designed by the radical modernist architect Oscar Niemeyer. This book is a unique collection of the cover art of Brazilian bossa nova music, containing hundreds of record covers complete with a history of bossa nova, biographies and essays on many of the artists involved in the movement. To coincide with the book, there is also a separate CD album, Bossa Nova And The Rise Of Brazilian Music In The 1960s, released on Soul Jazz Records." Hardcover, 180 pages with over 300 original covers.
